Social Studies
"Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall." - Confucius

The Social Studies department supports effective, engaging, and relevant social studies education in HISD schools so that all students can become knowledgeable about, and involved in, civic affairs.

“The primary purpose of social studies is to help young people develop the ability to make informed and reasoned decisions for the public good as citizens of a culturally diverse, democratic society in an interdependent world.” – NCSS
